Years ago, if we had truly cared about Ukraine, we could have prevented this war from ever happening. It is happening now though because John McCain and Lady G did not care about Ukraine’s security. They spent years packing the country full of dynamite which is now exploding in our face.
“WASHINGTON — Invoking the memory of his late friend Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., called on the international community to unite in its condemnation of Vladimir Putin, who sent Russian forces to invade Ukraine last week. The invasion has resulted in civilian casualties, a new refugee crisis and fears of a conflict that could engulf large parts of Europe.
Graham used a press conference on Wednesday morning to call on the U.S. government to “pursue war crimes allegations against Vladimir Putin and his military commanders” through institutions like the International Criminal Court or the International Court of Justice. His proposed resolution also affirms that the United States “stands with the people who have been affected by the brutality of the Putin regime.” …”
It is not like we are going to take responsibility for creating this volatile situation. The “intelligence community” has concluded that Vladimir Putin simply went mad. Sure, he has been saying that arming Ukraine is a red line for at least 14 years now, but what does that matter?
“Sen. Graham, R-S.C., was far more candid, not only in his support of Ukraine, but in his disgust with Russia for aggressive tactics in Europe and election tampering in the United States.
“To our friends in the Ukraine, I want it to be your decision [to join NATO] not Russia’s decision,” Graham said. It’s worth NATO allies considering that “the Ukrainians gave up a nuclear weapons arsenal, with the understanding that ‘if I do this I’m good to go.’ We signed up and everybody else did. And our friends in Russia step all over that.
“The rule of law means nothing to Russia,” Graham continued. “Does it mean anything to us? I’d be glad to have a better relationship with Russia but it’s difficult. I used to worry about antagonizing Russia. I won’t worry about that anymore. You’re going to get what you deserve if you keep this up. And to our friends in Georgia and Ukraine, be patient. Hopefully the rest of us will get a backbone and push back against aggression that I feel is unwarranted.” …”
Lady G was not worried about antagonizing Russia.
He wasn’t worried about any of the cascading effects of this war either.
